Highly Recommend!

Korvia is an excellent recruiting agency who helped place me in the GOE program. Steven in particular is really kind and friendly, and helped make the process as straight-forward as possible. Any questions I had were answered immediately, and I was given help every step of the way. The school I was placed in is excellent, and I have no complaints about any part of the process. The recruiters come across as genuinely having your best interests in mind, and I highly recommend Korvia Consulting as a recruitment agency.

Korvia 2022 spring applicant

I was an applicant for EPIK's Spring 2022 main intake who applied via Korvia. Korvia did an excellent job supporting me through my application and interview process, and they also helped me tremendously in finally getting to my placement in Korea. I unfortunately tested positive for Covid-19 5 days before the Spring 2022 Main intake arrival date. Korvia was extremely accommodating to me this unfortunate circumstance and were able to get me into EPIK's spring 2022 late intake in March. Thanks to them I am now in Korea teaching English and could not be happier about it! I recommend Korvia to anyone looking teach in Korea via the EPIK program, they are very good at what they do.

A Professional Team!

This is my second experience with Korvia Consulting and I must say that they've never failed to deliver. Jessie and the Korvia team were exceptionally swift, efficient and highly professional after my interview process with the 2 schools. They guided me throughout the process with no misunderstanding whatsoever. If you're deciding to teach abroad I would definitely suggest you choose Korvia as your door to a successful job placement. Just be ready to meet a group of staff that is dedicated to service!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Come to Korea with an open mind and have fun teaching, travelling and embrace the Korean culture and cuisine.

Much Appreciated Guide!

I'm so glad I decided to use KorVia, rather than apply on my own. It was extremely reassuring to have someone help me through the entire process---especially when planning something as big as living abroad. Rachel and the KorVia team were with me every step of the way. It was also reassuring to know that someone was helping me keep track of all of the required forms and paperwork. Whenever I had a question, I always got a prompt reply. I also appreciated the amount of resources they have on their website, online Q&A sessions, and orientation. I had a very positive experience with KorVia and would 100% recommend it to anyone.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
If you're applying to EPIK through KorVia, trust that the team knows what they are doing! The EPIK application is a very long, step-by-step process. For me it was such a relief knowing that I had someone guiding me and keeping track of what I needed to do.

The Best!

Korvia and their team were incredibly helpful from the very beginning. They were the first recruiting company I contacted and I am so glad I ended up accepting my job through them. Thelma has been the best throughout this process, from answering every question I had about the visa process to helping me through my arrival to korea and quarantine. I would have been lost without her and without Korvia! I am so thankful that I accepted my position through them, I know it was the best decision I could have made.

Korvia Consulting Review

This is my second time using Korvia, the first being back in 2013. Both times they did their utmost best to find me schools to apply for that fit my wants and needs. They were timely in their email responses and helped me with the document process. The first time, they helped in finding a good moving company that helped me with all my bags, and this time, they helped in booking a private vehicle transfer to my apartment, which I appreciated after a 25-26 hour travel day. They also put me in touch with both the education office coordinator and my head coteacher to communicate about any possible problems that could arise, or just general questions.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
There have been some changes to the document process, dependent on your country of residence, so be aware of that! Canada's Korean consulates have added a big step for document notarization, so be aware! It will add on at least 2 weeks for your paperwork process to be completed.

Super attentive and very helpful!

The Korvia team was so helpful and attentive to me during the entire process, checking in with me and ensuring I had everything I needed. I really enjoyed the follow up emails with guides attached and I also loved the timeline they sent so I could see what the process would be like! I only had a few moments where I felt communication lacked. Overall, I really like my school and I love where I live! My accommodations are clean, functional, and perfect for my purposes. I never have to worry about making appointments with immigration or anything because I know Korvia will help.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Start all paperwork as early as humanly possible!!!!

Great Experience!

I had an excellent experience with Korvia Consulting! Ann was very helpful throughout the process and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. She thoroughly prepared for me for all aspects of the journey and I was especially grateful for the guidance surrounding the new COVID-19 arrival procedures. In the beginning, she suggested opportunities that were a good match for my preferences and her support continued even after I had arrived in country. I would definitely recommend going through Korvia Consulting!
